New Buckeye Artificial Reefs Coordinates Off Steinhatchee, Keaton Beach in Taylor County, FL

by Capt. Tommy Thompson on Jan.14, 2014, under Keaton Beach to Fenholloway, Steinhatchee

From: Geoff Wallat, UF / Taylor County Marine and Natural Resources Agent
During this past summer and fall, Taylor County deployed 2 new artificial reefs on the
permitted Buckeye Reef site. This site is approximately 26 nautical miles off Keaton Beach. The
first reef deployment consisted of 120 constructed concrete cubes. The cubes were placed in
patches of 4 cubes per patch, for a total of 30 patch reefs. The center coordinates for this
deployment are 29  38.879 North, and 83 54.767 West. The additional patch reefs were
spaced at approximately 200 feet between each patch, in a cross pattern. The cubes extend out
North and South, and East and West from the center coordinates. This deployment
was funded by a cooperative grant agreement funded bythe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) with a match from the Taylor County Board of County Commissioners

The second deploymentent consisted of concrete culvert pipe and concrete material, donated by the local Florida Department of Transportation. Total weight of this deploymentwas 75 tons. This second deployment was made possible by the contributions of local Taylor County organizations and private citizens. The collective group included the Florida Departmentof Transportation (Cindy Dunkle), the Taylor County Tourism Development Council (Dawn Taylor), the Gainesville Offshore Fishing Club(Lou Graf, Richard McDavid and Jay Peacock), theTaylor County Reef Research Team (Jody Courtney and Mike McKinney), and land ownersGeorge Edwards and John Taliaferro who permitted the group to stage and load the materials. The coordinates for this reef are 29 38.441 North, and 83 54.748 West

.
Both artificial reef coordinates will be posted to the Taylor County Extension  webpage, at
.
Artificial reef systems have shown to have positive impacts on natural fish populations
by providing additional habitat for marine life. The artificial reefs support new reef
communities of marine life, which serves to promote the conservation and management of
several relationally important fish species such as gag grouper and red snapper. The artificial
reefs also provide increased angling and diving opportunities, which have positive economic
impacts for local businesses in Taylor County

Sand Trout/Silver Trout Invade the Flats of Taylor County!

by Capt. Tommy Thompson on Nov.12, 2013, under Keaton Beach to Fenholloway, Steinhatchee

The waters at Steinhatchee have cooled (to the high 50s) and cleared!  That means “silver” or “sand” trout have invaded the 5 to 6-foot flats between Steinhatchee and Keaton Beach.  These fish are better fighters than their spotted seatrout cousins and are actually better to eat.  Generally, they’re smaller, but we’ve seen some 18-inchers come to the docks.  And, in my opinion, they are better table fare, as they have no “protein deposits” (worms).  Silver trout are also easy to catch, with most anglers using simple jig head/grub tail combinations, worked slowly along the bottom or under corks.

It doesn’t take a big boat to fish the flats at Steinhatchee–especially on calm fall days.

Trout are also showing up in the local deep-water trout holes.  Anglers have caught a few spotted seatrout in Dallus Creek, north of Steinhatchee and in the river holes near marker #26 in the Steinhatchee River.  In those places,  plugs (MirrOlure TTs or Paul Brown Devils) or live shrimp moved slowly across the bottom work well.

The silver trout invasion should last a few more weeks, and the deep-water trout fishery will last through the winter month.

2012 Scallopers Map Now Available!

by Capt. Tommy Thompson on Jul.02, 2012, under FLORIDA'S BIG BEND AND EMERALD COAST

Scallopers, rejoice!

Just in time for the start of the 2012 scalloping season, Florida Sea Grant has published the boat ramp and marina locator map, “Recreational Harvesting of the Florida Bay Scallop: Steinhatchee and Keaton Beach Areas.”

Inside, viewers will find a full-color map identifying access routes to the boat ramps and marinas in southern Taylor County near Steinhatchee and Keaton Beach.

 Scallopers Map Now Available for Steinhatchee, Keaton Beach Scallopers Map Now Available for Steinhatchee, Keaton Beach
Fred Vose, the Taylor County Sea Grant extension agent who authored the publication, has included the latest educational information about scallops and scalloping, the recommended equipment scallopers will
want to bring, and a few tasty recipes for preparing Florida’s best summertime catch.
The information helps Floridians and visitors appreciate the important role these secretive bivalves play in a healthy near-shore environment, according to Vose. He mentions these nuggets of information:

  • Scallops are simultaneous ‘hermaphrodites,’ which means they can
    spawn as either males or females. A single scallop can produce
  • more than one million eggs per spawn.
    The scallop population in the Steinhatchee area is a core, stable population that supports a healthy, sustained crop almost every
    year, and is the principal source of scallops for outlying populations extending far to the south and north.
  • Though not required by current fishing regulations, researchers now recommend that scallops smaller than 1 1/2 inches in diameter should not be collected.

Free copies of the ramp and marina locator map for Steinhatchee and Keaton Beach are available in numerous marinas throughout Taylor County, the Taylor County IFAS Extension office in Perry, or by
contacting Florida Sea Grant, (info@flseagrant.org), (352) 392-2801.

Sea Hag Marina in Steinhatchee Makes Major Lodging Upgrades

by Capt. Tommy Thompson on Apr.05, 2011, under Steinhatchee

For the last couple of years, despite my loyalty to The Sea Hag Marina in Steinhatchee, I’ve been ‘down’ on recommending lodging there.  The motel rooms at Paces’ Cottages across the street had become run down and while the lodging at the marina was somewhat better, it still lacked in amenities and decor.

Paces Cottage, exterior

Paces' Cottages' motel rooms show vast improvement with new paint job.

One of the big problems with the Paces’ properties was that while the Sea Hag handled rentals, they didn’t own the place.  Now the units are part of the Sea Hag Empire and thanks to owner Charlie Norwood’s spending some money and Audrey Switalski doing some decorating and painting, they’re really very nice.  The rooms are cozy, and the new beds, linens, microwaves, flat-screen TVs and coffee-makers make them an excellent value for your next fishing trip.

Paces interior

The motel rooms at Steinhatchee's Paces' Cottages are cozy and clean.

There are five lodging choices that are actually on the grounds of the Sea Hag.  One, the Ragin’ Redfish, is atop the Ship’s Store. The Mermaid Cove is located just to the west of the marina and offers dockage, a hot tub, and a ‘romantic’ 4-poster bed.  The Grouper Shack, the Scallop Place and the Skallywag Shack have all been updated, too.  Visit the Sea Hag’s Web site for details and rates. And don’t forget to make your reservations soon for scallop season!
